I really enjoyed my time at the Yellow House Hostel. Vincent was very welcoming and so were his two big dogs Badias and Tomas. Tomas thought he was a big bad dog barking at passersby but he was the sweetest dog once you were in the house. And Badias was always lounging around. Vincent made breakfast every morning consisting of... More

Very nice hostel. I recommend it for travelers with a tight budget The 6 bed dorm is affordable( 20 000 per night) , very clean. Beds are comfortable. Nights are quiet. The place is really nice, quiet and enables travelers to rest far from the party nights. The included breakfast is really good, and tasty ( eggs, coffee, juce, fresh... More

This is a quiet little hostel in a good neighborhood close to shopping, restaurants, bars and 2 blocks from a metro station that can take you most everywhere you want to go in the city. There is a 6 bed dorm and 5 privet rooms. A good kitchen with all the necessities and a microwave, very nice bed sheets, laundry,... More

We stayed for 4 nights in Medellin and fortunately met a nice crowd at this hostel. Its a bit out of town but quiet and near to a free outdoor swimming pool (passport,speedos and hat required). On the morning after our arrival the owner was not particularly welcoming and aside from giving us a map did little else to advise... More

I recommend calling to confirm the availability of space for the duration of your trip. I enjoyed my stay but had to leave earlier than anticipated because of a reservation recieved after my arrival. Vincent was very nice, while Jero was a handful at times. Breakfast was good and included in the price. Fresh fruit and juices changed while eggs... More

This is the hostel that every hostel should measure up to! I had an internship in Medellin and was initially planning to stay in Yellow House for a week, then extended my stay up to a month but... loved it so much that I have ended up staying for 2 months! Vincent (the owner) is the best because he really... More

Stayed here in February of 2013 when I came back to visit Colombia. Was a good place for the price in a nice secure area of Medellin. Vincent was great, any problems we had he made it right. He was so cool that after touring other parts of Colombia he allowed me to come back and take a shower before... More

We stayed at yellow house for a total of 4 nights and it is by far the best place we have stayed during our 5 month trip. Vincent is the funniest and friendliest host you will ever meet and his 2 dogs Matieu and Tomas are amazing. When we decided to visit nearby guatape for a night vincent let us... More

Haha I love to tease the french. This place is very simply but stands out from my hostel experiences. Vincent is something of a mommydad. He cooks (breakfast is the best Ive had in a hostel) he keeps the place super clean. Answers any question that you have regarding anything in the city. There is always room here. I even... More
